by Lisa Gerrard & Megan Smith,
two more of Kelly Flynn's best friends---
from Maggie Sefton's SKEIN OF THE CRIME
Lisa: Hey, there, everybody----Kelly is in Denver with her BIG Denver developer client, so she asked Megan and me to post for her today. So, I'll start----let's see. . .I'm a physical therapist and work over at the Sports Clininc here in Fort Connor, but I'm also taking grad courses in psychology at the state university, which is also in town. I grew up here in Fort Connor, and I love it, love it. My boyfriend, Greg, and I usually spend every weekend we can outside biking or hiking or----
Megan: Or, playing ball, don't forget the season is starting. In fact, we've got a practice tomorrow night. So don't forget to put that on your daytimer. You're the pitcher, and we need you. In case any of you guys live under a rock, Baseball Season has already started.
Lisa: Yeah, yeah. . .this is Megan, everybody, so I'll let her introduce herself.
Megan: Hey, guys, I'm Megan, and I'm a refugee from corporate IT. Could NOT take all those meetings. I worked for them long enough to learn a LOT, so I've developed quite a healthy consulting business on my own. Plus, I LOVE my schedule. I have time to work, time to escape to the knitting shop, Lambspun, and catch up with friends Kelly, Jennifer, and Mother Mimi---
Lisa: And time to shop for a wedding gown. . .or, have you forgotten you're getting married this Fall?
Megan: Yeah, yeah. . .I remember, I just haven't found time to go shopping.
Lisa: I swear, Kelly's right. You're gonna get married in your softball jersey and cleats.
Megan: I've been WAY too busy getting everything else organized. Shopping for dresses. . .that is just SO not my thing. Especially wedding gowns. Too much frou frou. Gauze, lace, beads---
Lisa: Don't forget the ruffles.
Megan: Ack! I almost forgot those. Why is it so many of those gowns have ruffles? What's up with that?
Lisa: I think brides like to look pretty on their wedding day. Most brides, that it.
Megan: Hey, Marty will love me no matter what I wear. Softball jersey or wedding gown. So, I may just wait till the last minute and grab a white dress off some store rack. Just to irritate you guys.
Lisa: Please tell me you're kidding.
Megan: (wicked grin) Maybe I am, maybe I'm not. That softball jersey and cleats sound good, now that you mention it. Marty would LOVE not having to get dressed up. He's in lawyer-dark suits every day.
Lisa: No frou frou Megan. Okay, everybody. . .what do YOU think? Will no frou frou Megan find a wedding gown or will she go for the softball jersey and cleats?
